The assembled fathers within The Purple Bat Lounge celebrated their special day this past Saturday evening. You could justly accuse them of jumping the gun, but were you there, the collective Dad impatience was understandable. There was great music, selected with verve and esprit de corps by the bar’s DJ’s, Reeshard & Lee-Roy. There were intriguing transactions made just outside the door to the alley. Cocktails were served in quantity, despite bartender LaWanda being ostensibly M.I.A. throughout the festivities. Uncle Morty turned up in his ‘distressed finish’ truck, bearing party favors that couldn’t be ignored. And when all was said and done, what did the Dads in attendance have to show for their pre-Father’s Day bash? Some empty Wippets containers rolling down the staircase to the basement, the occasional discarded condom wrapper, a persistent ringing in the ears…and the feeling that one had truly been somewhere. We can at very least impart this last takeaway to you, dear listeners. Simply click where you’re supposed to, a few pixels south of this sentence…

Spring proceeds apace at the Purple Bat Lounge, as climbing temperatures prompt the regulars into something resembling liveliness, only to see them slump face-first on the bar top a few moments later. Bartender LaWanda is still MIA for the most part, indicating that she’s doing a brisk business with tech sector clients in her Port-A-Dungeon™, down in the bar’s basement. Upstairs, DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy spin four storming sets of transgressive music from all over the place. And, as always, our favorite deliveryman Uncle Morty makes his requisite mid-show appearance. (When Lee-Roy takes receipt of a small can labeled Ruben & The Jets, he gets a pocket history lesson from his owner.) Refreshing noise curated for discriminating palates, delivered in a subtly narcotic atmosphere…what more do you want? Go on, it’s…just…down…there…

Last Saturday evening kicked off with a chestnut much loved by the patrons of The Purple Bat Lounge: Bettye Crutcher’s “Sugar Daddy.” The lyrics immediately sank their unholy claws into DJ Lee-Roy’s fetid canine mind. Within the hour, our favorite pit bull was obsessed with what he perceived as his predestined status: sugar daddy. Which, of course, provided the impetus for much spirited banter between the dog and his co-host/owner/bail bondsman, Reeshard. Thankfully, none of this got in the way of some three dozen tunes comprising the evening’s musical backdrop. Nor did it distract Lee-Roy when Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up in front…but then, what could? Another female empowerment twin-bill screened at The Madison and, overall, a most righteous time was had by all in attendance. Which, now, can be shared by you in the comparative safety of your own home. Go ahead, click the little arrow and find out for yourself…

To inhabit the Purple Bat Lounge on an optimum Saturday evening, as was the one just past, was to feel life’s crude energy flowing through one’s person…in a particularly dodgy part of town. The air within the bar was colored by music chock-full of vivid and violent ideas. Without, the temperature was conducive to making deals in the back alley, though the reopening of the bar’s Outdoor Patio remains a few degrees distant. It was that peculiar time, winter’s torpor slowly being shed for a hedonistic tilt better suited to warm weather. In other words: Uncle Morty’s truck couldn’t arrive soon enough. DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy did their level best to shepherd the assembled throng — well, those still conscious by 9 pm — through this unstable period, offering the promise of an ultra-violent Blaxploitation twin bill at The Madison in addition to nearly three dozen storming tunes. Hear all this and more, yours for the mere click on a virtual transport button…just…down…there…

Returning after more than a month’s work related absence, Reeshard & Lee-Roy  resumed business within the DJ booth at the Purple Bat Lounge last Saturday evening. Those who can recall the night in question — but who speaks to those people? — say it was like the pair had never left. Certainly all the ingredients of a successful night on the town were present and accounted for: A human and his faithful feckless pit bull spinning nearly three dozen tunes at lease-breaking volume; a double-feature of Russ Meyer nudie-cuties screening at the Madison; and, of course, Uncle Morty’s former ice cream truck making its requisite mid-show appearance. Of course, onto each parade some rain must fall. It was with no little sorrow that the respective departures from this mortal coil of both Andre Williams (long-standing patron saint of NCIP) and defining iconoclast Scott Walker were duly commemorated during the broadcast. But even those memento mori enhanced a couple of entertaining hours wasted in downtown Detroit. Hear for yourself by clicking a few pixels to the south of these words…

In the run-up to next week’s first of two Luxuria Music Pledge Drive shows, DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy put on a collective brave face and did their level best to convince anyone within earshot that the world was not ending. Or, more to the point, if the world was in fact about to pop its clogs, no one within the Purple Bat Lounge cared very much about said event. Over three dozen storming tunes were heard in the course of this Saturday evening and a very, very psychedelic twin-bill featured at the Madison Theater. With the appropriate gesture that is his signature, Uncle Morty brought a canister of LSD-25 to the DJ booth. Lee-Roy recognized a thread of conceptual continuity materializing and, in response, fashioned an empathogen-friendly final set. You might ask: What could that have sounded like? You could learn the answer to your own question simply by clicking immediately below…it’s just that easy.

Wait…what happened? When? Last Saturday night? Well…we remember getting in that fly Electra Two-And-A-Quarter and driving down Brush Street to the Purple Bat Lounge…oh yeah, then Lee-Roy, ever the charm school drop-out, hollered at bartender LaWanda to whip up one of her signature Lee-Roy cocktails…the tunes began to play…LOUDLY…then Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up — he missed the lawn jockey, I remember that much — and the rest, frankly, is a bit of a blur. You’ll just have to examine the official record — just a few pixels south of where you’re reading…yeah, it’s the thing with the big <PLAY> arrow — and make up your own mind…it must have been fun…well, you’ll find out soon enough…

The Ultimate Collection

Pictured: The Bobbettes w. Ahmet Ertegun (r.).

Last Saturday’s episode began on time…but only just, in no small part owing to DJ Reeshard’s ability to track down co-host Lee-Roy, the latter missing in action immediately prior to airtime. Specifics of the sordid incident are revealed in this week’s audio bonus, available to stream or download immediately below Ep. 184. With order — or the most acceptable facsimile of same — restored, here’s what happened: A heapin’ helpin’ of raucous music played; libations were poured; deals were made just outside the back door in the alley; inhibitions were discarded for the evening’s balance (with some help from Uncle Morty, whose former ice cream truck materialized in a punctual manner mid-program); tenuous alliances formed until the spell was broken; and all manner of picaresque diversions suffused the atmosphere within the Purple Bat Lounge. Hear all this and more, merely by clicking a few pixels south of here…

Apparently DJ Reeshard pulled what fellow DJ Lee-Roy deems “his shrunken Caucasian cojones” out of the hot water during last Saturday’s broadcast from the Purple Bat Lounge. And just how did Reeshard accomplish as much? By announcing on air that the latest N.C.I.P. premium for the upcoming Luxuria Music Pledge Drive would be…wait for it, wait for it…matchbooks! Yes, matchbooks commemorating the show’s base of operations, the Purple Bat itself. Lee-Roy responded to the news with a shrug of his shoulders: “So what? I use a vape pen.” We can’t help but feel that the canine contrarian is missing the point. Try writing some bitch’s number on a vape pen, Big Dog, and see where that gets you. Imagery for the forthcoming flame-starters will be posted on the site in the week to come. Quoting our old pal Borat, “We very excite!” In the meantime, check out the latest show with its three dozen tunes, a big bad Blaxploitation double feature at The Madison, a visit from Uncle Morty and so much more, all by clicking immediately below…
